Spring Altered Book



I was recently looking through some old books in Oxfam when I spotted  this old book by Enid Blyton. It was called “ Brer  Rabbit Again” I thought it would be perfect to use with the cute little wooden bunnies I have from Calico Craft Parts. So I began my venture to alter the book, please follow me on my adventure over on the Calico Craft Parts Blog today xx

Thank you ou so much for visiting. xx 

I would like to enter this into Artistic Stampers Word Challenge.

Valentine Animals Printers Tray


I am so happy to share my first project as a member of the very talented Calico Craft Parts Design Team. I love animals so I couldn’t wait to paint these lovely mini sized animals. This is the first printer tray I have made, it was really easy and fun to put together. The animals left their muddy paw, and hoof prints  all around the edges! (Hero Art stamps)

All of the details about how I made the Valentine Tray are on the Calico Craft Parts Blog

Wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day, thank you so much for visiting xx

Alice In Wonderland


I have of course returned to creating an Alice In Wonderland whatnot again. It will be the first of many this year, as 2020 is the anniversary of Sir John Tenniel’s  birth 200 years ago. He was the artist who so beautifully illustrated the Alice books.

I turned one of Tim Holtz hare dies into the white rabbit, and several of my other Alice stamps joined him too. I used watercolours, and polychromo pencils for my colouring.I used a little piece from a paper doily to make Alice’s  apron. 

Thank you for visiting xx 

I would like to add Alice to the following challenges.

I love Elephants !



I love elephants, and I often try to draw them in my journal. Jane Davenport bought out a new line  of wild and whimsical stamps which included an elephant so of course it had to come and live with me ! The  stamp has a lovely little lady balanced on her head, on this occasion I just wanted to use the elephant. I took my time to ink up the stamp trying to avoid the lady. I wiped off  the ink which still managed to find its way onto the lady.



Water colours are my favourite colouring medium,  I used them to create my background, and also to add colour to my elephant. 

Thank you for visiting me today xx

December Daily, Book Folding and Napkins



I have finally completed my December Daily for 2019! I cut a selection of pages, envelopes, tags etc, originallyI was going to use book rings. I soon decided that they looked too bulky, so I opted for ribbon instead.


I wanted to keep it simple and easy to do, so I used a pad of stickers from Kaiserkraft which incorporated numbers from 1 to 31 which were very useful. 









I have also recently tried book folding for the first time. 


I also recycled a beautiful Deer image from a serviette. 
Thank you for visiting xx
